Step Up

Dancing movies - who would've thought? But they're back in force – this one brings together romance, R&B and a "confluence of classic ballet with street dance".

Tyler Gage is one of those rebels from the wrong side of Baltimore's tracks. Nora is a privileged ballet dancer attending an ultra-elite School of the Arts. Standing in her way, to a brilliant career, is finding a worthy dance partner for her senior showcase.

When trouble with the law lands Tyler with a community service gig at her school, he arrives as an angry man until his skills as a phat street dancer draw Nora's attention. Sparks fly, shoes get danced in. And soon, Tyler sees the opportunity to perform as a chance to knuckle down – "step up" – to a better life.

Very Enjoyable

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this film. It wasn't overacted, and had a great storyline, that seemed to stay true to itself. It was a wonderful, insprising storyline, that seemed to develop naturally. The girls will love it, and they guys could sit through it too with out too much trouble I think.

The movie serves up a pleasant, if unsurprising, confluence of classic ballet with street dance, not to mention a seamless collusion of polite racial integration with savvy niche marketing...

Step, under the sure hand of director-choreographer Anne Fletcher, quickly discovers its own virtuoso charms. Two of them are its leads...
